Well I am not sure about it. Anyways right now I am going with the ID suggested by you.

Can you please help me with ID for my another spotting at: http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/173...

Thanks Vijay! Then it'll be due to iridescence. If you check the reference link you will see that some of the pictures show the white parts of the wing slightly bluish too,although not that blue.

Dear Daniele,
Thanks for suggesting the ID.

But with actual naked eye also I could see the bluish shade on the butterly and not whitish as mentioned by you !!

I have added another photo of the same spotting to confirm this.

Hi vijay! The part of the forewing which appears bluish in this picture should normally be whitish. Maybe a white balance issue with the camera.
